Palladium by arsheesh Palladium by arsheesh
This was a private commission done for a fan of the Palladium RPG. Though this is the finished map that I will be displaying in my portfolio, I am also currently still working on a slightly edited version of this map that is more true to the original design (i.e. river violations galore!). The first RPG I ever played as a kid was Palladium, and I have many fond memories of this world. So it was an absolute joy to be able to work on this map.

Beautiful piece of work. I wonder, tho', how the disputed lands are disputed if there are no nearby states to dispute 'em? :)

Thanks!  That's a good question, but I'll leave it to the good people over at Palladium games to answer it.  I didn't invent the names, just updated the map.

Thanks ukrainik. I used GIMP to create the initial height map, then ran it through Wilbur to (a terrain program) to generate rivers, then back into GIMP for more fine tuning. Also used Inkscape for the labeling. I have a tutorial over at the Cartographers Guild that describes the general steps I go through to create a map like this.

Cheers,

As a Palladium Fan I have to say that your map is the Best Palladium Fantasy world map I've seen. I am defiantly linking to it for my Online Palladium Fantasy group. I wish I could draw Palladium Fantasy maps even a tenth as good(I use pencils and graph paper and then edit them in MS paint. I know I'm a luddite.)
